The National Intellectual Property Administration (NIPA) in China continues to clarify the guidelines for blockchain patent applications, which are set to become effective as of Feb. 1.
At the end of December 2019, the NIPA announced the revised guidelines to patent applications for new emerging technologies such as blockchain, artificial intelligence, big data, and business rules and methods.
One example of the revised guidelines is a method and device for secure communication between blockchain nodes. The invention patent application proposes a blockchain node communication method and device that solves the problem where blockchain business nodes leak privacy data while communicating with each other.
